Quick Resources for the Sturgeon Release!

Here are some of the key resources you can use to prepare your students for the Juvenile Sturgeon Release.


All our videos are great, but Video 10 (Hatchery), Video 9 (Life Cycle) and Video 4 (Predation) are very helpful to prepare for the release.


Lesson 3-2 explores the sturgeon life-cycle. Review this ahead so students have a good sense of how the sturgeon life-cycle is different to salmon.

Where is My Fish?

Search through the Where is my Fish? database to find a fish you or your class has released in the past. Check out Mya - the fish that got eaten by an otter!
